Mik's Mini Bat Collection: Doubleday Field
In Cooperstown there is a field called Doubleday Field that is on the site that they say Abner Doubleday basically invented baseball back in 1839. Mik wanted to find a mini bat that said Doubleday Field. At Cooperstown Bats we found a medium sized and big bat that said Doubleday Field, but no mini bat. We talked with them a little and worked out they could put part of the logo from the medium bat design on a mini bat, so Mik ended up with a special order mini bat that we picked up a half hour later as his Doubleday Field mini bat. It was not even that expensive, as it was about the same as the mini bat he got personalized at the Louisville Slugger Factory.
The mini bat has the Cooperstown Bats logo on it. The Doubleday Field logo says Doubleday Field, Cooperstown, N.Y., The Home of Baseball. There is also a C logo with a batter.
